The plain silver or common birch, sometimes called 'the lady of the woods' because of its outstanding elegance, is a great landscape feature, especially in autumn and while still young - older trees can become enormous, but without dominating or shading the garden too much. When planted 60cm (2ft) apart, the trees make a fine hedge, or may be grown 2.4m (8ft) apart as a screen or windbreak, which can be trimmed each winter. Growth is upright, later slightly weeping, especially the young outer stems - trim shoots off the trunk to reveal the attractive bark.

    Have never bought plants on line before so didn’t know what to expect.
    Didn’t recognize the parcel as trees but when unwrapped I couldn’t believe the roots were still nice and wet and the trees have straightened up beautifully in their new place.
    Will order more from Beechwood.
    Straightforward and efficient.
